. at the pentagon defense secretary chuck hagel warned it's north korea's long-range missiles that have sounded the alarm. >> but north korea in particular has recently made advances in its capabilities and has engaged in a series of irresponsible and reckless provocation. >> reporter: to counter the growing threat from north korea, the u.s. military will bolster the missile defense system in alaska by 50%, adding 14 interceptor missiles at fort greeley designed to intercept and destroy missiles aimed at the continental u.s. the u.s. military will also install an additional high-powered radar in japan to improve early warning capabilities. but why the deep concern now? remarkably, it ramped up last april during this military parade through the streets of pyongyang. u.s. intelligence was shocked to see what appeared to be long-range ballistic missiles that can be fired from mobile launchers with the capability of reaching the u.s. armed with a nuclear warhead. >> obviously without getting into intelligence aspects we watched this evolving threat very, very closely. >> reporter: the latest threat

, the state department, and pentagon have all pushed back to varying degrees against the syrian government's accusation that the rebels launched chemical weapons. the white house spokesman, jay carney, today said the white house has no evidence to support the claims. but jay carney did issue another warning to the syrian government, which reportedly has one of the world's largest stockpiles of chemical weapons. >> it's important that as fighting in syria intensifies and the regime becomes more desperate, that the united states and international community make absolutely clear to assad that the use of chemical weapons would be totally unacceptable. the president was clear when he said if assad and those under his commend make the mistake of using chemical weapons or do not secure them there will be consequences. >> shepard: that's the white house. the pentagon spokesman said that he could not corroborate that anyone used chemical weapons in sir ra, but it will monitor the situation. let's get to the white house. james is there. we have heard only slightly different things from the white hou

proposal would allow the pentagon more flexibility in implementing the cuts, and democrats say they want more flexibility for the domestic agencies as well. is that a fair trade? >> but they are willing to work with us. the first premise has to be we will have real cuts in spending because washington has a spending problem. they have to admit this is a problem. then we can work to fix it. personally i would rather go into targeted areas and cut things that do not work. if they are willing to work with us and have an adult conversation about that, that is fine, but six months ago we tried to build -- bring this up before it was a crisis. we passed a bill out of the house to do what you're talking about and the senate did not take it up for six months. the president has not talked about until a week before the crisis. people are tired of washington living crisis to crisis. i am glad the senate is finally engaged now that it has come to pass. and we will be willing to work with them, but it is a little late in the game to be talking about it after it happened. there is enough common ground
expenditures in excess of $16 billion. so you have this massive need for energy at the pentagon, really a thirst for energy at the pentagon, and fluctuations in global energy prices have in effect enormous effects on defense spending. every $10 increase in a barrel of oil costs the american military annually an extra $1.3 billion. now, for some time there has been a recognition among military experts and some are in the president's home state, massachusetts, where they have spent a lot of time looking at these issues, and there's been a recognition that the military, particularly the pentagon, is exactly the place where we ought to be looking for fresh, innovative approaches in order to cut energy use and find alternative sources. now, for the life of me i cannot figure out how somehow this effort by the pentagon -- let me repeat, by our country's, you know, military -- has somehow been con flated into some kind of green plot, some kind of plot by those who are obsessed with green energy and are simply interested in promoting programs to satisfy their ideological spung interest. -- you

very vigorously, and certainly not bied pentagon. >> men can care about this issue, too, but the women senators and women representatives are really the ones who have driven this. one of the things that's striking is listening to the report about the vatican's problems and the church's problems dealing with this. it's very parallel. you have another hierarchy that's had great difficulty dealing with seriously a problem on its hands that has preferred to ignore it rather than take the necessary steps. watches this testimony today from the service men and women was really wrenching when you hear about 18-year-olds being raped by the people they're supposed to be reporting to. the pentagon, leon panetta deserves credit for having started to tackle this. secretary hagel really needs to make sure that there are ways within the chain of command, or around the chain of command, understanding that the military is a unique institution like the church, to figure out how to prevent this from happening. >> well, very often to report an assault you had to report your supervisor or the person who is
